Press release: http://www.aalto.fi/en/current/news/2017-04-05-002/ Project page: http://userinterfaces.aalto.fi/scatterplot_optimization/ Algorithms can now exploit models and measures of human perception to generate scatterplot designs. Picture represents scatterplot of pressure and temperature variables from the Hurricane Isabel dataset. The standard design (left) loses fidelity and requires manual adjustment, but the optimized design (right) automatically adapts to the data.
